The best way to ring in the new year is with an NFL game galore. I don’t know about you, but I don’t just want to see my fantasy team win the title. I want to start 2023 with a good payday.
Week 17 certainly brings a lot of excitement…and a lot of questions for sports bettors to consider. Will teams rest their starter for the playoffs, and will some teams play with more grit because they’re in his hunt for the playoffs?
One thing is for sure, there is a lot of excitement.
It’s worth an early start pinning it to the SI Sportsbook if you want to get in on the action on Sunday.
Justin Fields Over 70.5 yards (-125)
Ignore last week’s duds. Not only does Justin Fields have a chance to break his prop for his 1st rushing yards in his season this year, but already in Week 10 he’s ripping the Lions for 147 yards. This prop is only half that, with Fields averaging 72 yards per game. Yeah, I bet overs.
Amon La St. Brown Over 79.5 receiving yards (-120)
Amon-Ra St. Brown’s 132 targets rank sixth in the league, with a 26.5% target share for the Lions. The Bears have allowed opponent wideouts for 173 yards per game in his last three contests, and this game marked his highest total in a week on his SI Sportsbook. St. Brown scored against Chicago in Week 10. He caught 10 passes and gained 119 yards.
Justin Jefferson Receive Yards Over 95.5 (-120)
Sure, the Vikings have already dominated the division, so they might rest the starter, but I don’t think they want to help the Packers challenge the postseason. , averaging 117 yards per game this year. In Week 1, Jefferson flew Green Bay for his 181 yards, setting the pace for a phenomenal season.
Zach Moss Over 58.5 yards (-125)
Since losing Jonathan Taylor, Moss has taken a leading role in the Colts’ backfield, averaging 18 carries and 73 yards over the past two games. With a serious question mark on the QB position, it makes sense that Indianapolis would rely on a run game versus the Giants defense, which has the second-most yards per carry of any opposing running back this year. (5.66) is allowed.
Jerrick McKinnon Over 30.5 receiving yards (-120)
McKinnon seems to be Patrick Mahomes’ favorite target. He has averaged six catches per game and his 71 receiving his yards per game over the past three years, surpassing this prop in each. McKinnon had 112 yards against Denver in Week 14, so expect him to top his prop receiving this low.
